Alibaba is a Chinese based company whose name is derived from the Chinese phrase” Alibaba” which translates literally to “white water”. It is one of the most dominant companies in China and has a market value of more than $40 billion. This company is best known for the market that it maintains through the sale of equity. The market is named Aliyu, pronounced “Al-Yi”. In this article, we will take a detailed look at the BABA at https://www.webull.com/quote/nyse-baba marketplace and what the company does with this unique marketing strategy.
The marketplace is like the stock market but instead of dealing with stocks, it deals with the trading of microurities (a type of stock) called “Alibaba”. These are shares of equity in the company, which is traded and issued by a brokerage firm. The market works like this because these stocks are very small, so they cannot be purchased or sold on the regular market. They must be purchased via a broker or through a specific online investor portal. After all, there is a limit to the amount of micro-urities that can be bought at any given time.
The company uses a two tier market system in which they first offer Aliyu through the traditional broker channel and then expand the market with over the Internet. This strategy allows them to increase the liquidity of their stock and therefore expand their customer base. Once the company started to expand outside of China they started with Nasdaq and then OTCBB. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. For instance Nasdaq offers a better return on equity (ROE), it is faster and easier to trade, and allows for more company exposure.
OTCB requires more capital upfront and does not offer as wide a market as Nasdaq. This is because they are considered a high risk investment. Many investors have lost money in this market and do not make a lot of money at it. They usually deal with companies that do not have significant assets and/or management teams.
In order to buy shares in Aliyu, investors must be members of the affiliated equity financing organizations i.e. accredited share capital funds. They can either invest through these institutions or through direct shares from the parent company itself. Direct shares allow independent shareholders to buy large portions of the company. However, they are not as liquid and have low trading frequency.
Alibaba group stock investment does come with certain risks. If the parent company is unable to continue trading on an international scale, or if the market conditions in China change drastically, the value of the shares may decrease. Other risks include indirect control by minority interests, limited liquidity due to trading restrictions and inability to deliver on delivery in a timely fashion. There are also instances where the price of the shares goes up suddenly and then they drop back.
